As you can see she had started to reupholster it in this really boring fabric and then gave up (she didn't say why) so I decided to start from scratch and pull everything off of it.

And then the original horsehair was still a part of the chair and that she had chosen to leave it there during her reupholstering failure.

I decided to leave the burlap because it left a nice "housing" around the springs and gave the back some structure between the arms. But I think I have removed most of the horsehair (I think there is still some lurking under the springs I can't get to) and now I can move onto the fun part....putting her back together!
